How Often to Change 2015 Volkswagen Beetle Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2015 Volkswagen Beetle? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2015 Beetle’s oil should be changed according to Volkswagen’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Beetle may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Volkswagen recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Volkswagen Beetle. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2015 Volkswagen Beetle Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Volkswagen Beetle motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Volkswagen Beetle engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Volkswagen Beetle oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
